A look back at Mamdouh Elssbiay’s bodybuilding journey ahead of the big day 

Making his name register in the bodybuilding world, Elssbiay wrote his name on the pro card by coming out victorious with the overall title at the 2012 Amateur Olympia. Since then, there had been no looking back for him. Making his IFBB pro-debut the following year, he registered a comfortable win. However, he faced a little setback when he was diagnosed with Covid-19 and had to step away from participating in the 2020 Europa Pro Bodybuilding Championships.
